2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo will cost you $212,435. Is it worth it?

Cars
[MUSIC] Some things in life are guaranteed, like death, taxes, and every year Nissan making some sort of improvement to the GT-R. Sure, some years during the current R35 generation's decade run involved only small changes to power, the gear box or suspension, while others were slightly more substantial with styling, The updates.<<but i'll="" argue="" that="" nissan's="" constant="" tinkering.<<of="" its="" legendary="" sports="" car.<<has="" kept="" it="" relevant.<<and="" this="" here="" is="" the="" 2020="" nissan="" gtr="" nismo.="" <="" div=""></but> Which is the most capable GDPR street car to come from the factory today, thanks to you guessed it, small updates sprinkled throughout helping it become a bit better both on the street but most importantly on track. [SOUND] [SOUND] When it's on road or on track, here at GingerMan Raceway in South Bend, Michigan, the [UNKNOWN] holds up incredibly well. Still looking [UNKNOWN] and aggressive. This Nissan is even more so with a carbon fiber front lip, front fender [UNKNOWN] that help front down force, side [UNKNOWN], a bigger rear wing and rear But wait, there is even more carbon fiber. With the Nismo using the light weight material for it's bumpers, hood, trunk lid, and roof to lower the center of the gravity. But accounting for the new body panels in various other fresh components, the 2020 Nissan GT-Rs 3865 pound curved way makes it 66 pounds lighter than before For. And inside, it's still the same layout it got a few years back. That's jazzed up a smidge with a specific red and black gizmo color scheme Alcantara on the recurring seats that fit me like a glove, steering wheel dash, headliner and in his motel. [MUSIC] Unlike the interior that originally graced the hour 35. The one in here is actually quite nice with quality materials. And it should be because I mentioned tourismo is a $212,000 car? [SOUND] Yes Yes, this is $200,000 Nissan that I can say is compliant enough on the road, when you put the retuned Bilstein suspension with softer springs in comfort mode. Which is important when you're not on track. There is a ton of tire noise, though. But when you are on track, I'm telling you, this is the most tenacious and fun GTR I've ever driven. The engine is the same 3.8 liter twin turbo charge V6 making 600 horsepower and 481 [UNKNOWN] torque at [UNKNOWN]. But it's now got more response to turbos from the GT race car. And it's connected to a 60 joule cross transmission And that's also renewed for more aggressive shifts in our [UNKNOWN] Nissan is also reworked the titanium exhaust system in hopes of making it sound meter and they've succeeded. It's got a deeper tone and crackles and pops when you push it and that's a big difference from every other GT I've driven in the past that we're droning and not very. Pleasing. But man, the drag train is the best that's ever been. Especially when you think back to how crude and jerky it was when it first came out. Power is ridiculous to romping down in [UNKNOWN] straights, at corners and from ****. [SOUND] Nissan doesn't quote 60 mile per hour times. But it does it in about three seconds. Which looks and sounds like this. [SOUND] [LAUGH] The gearbox is merely responsive to manual shift commands and has well time [INAUDIBLE] in full auto. What hasn't changed? That would be the transmissions, audible worlds and clunks that are just part of the GTR's his personality. [BLANK_AUDIO] One other surprising wrinkle is that the back end will Actually step out on you, which is a trait that makes the Nismo the most involving GTR I've ever experienced. So you have to pay attention and actually drive it instead of chucking it in the corners and letting all the electronics magically get you to your points. But as great as all the improvements are done in the Nismo, one thing that can Can't be mast is the curve way. It's definitely there and felt through transitions and takes its toll on the tires quicker so longer hard track sessions aren't the best idea for him. So if you wanna put the baddest Nissan GTR to date in your garage, and Israel is going to cost you $212,435 with destination. For that kind of money you could get yourself into a lot of other performance cars like say an Audi R8 McLaren 570s or a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It was my money. I'd have myself a Porsche. However, if a die-hard Nissan GTR fan runs out and gets themselves and is no more power to them. It's an incredible car, but it's just not $200000 incredible in my book. [BLANK_AUDIO]
